Abstract : Whereas the first program included papers on a wide variety of topics, the second symposium was divided into three main areas of coatings, electron resist polymers, and fibers. Dr. Larry Thompson of Bell Laboratories ably organized the half-day session on electron resist polymers. This new field is especially appropriate, because it uses the scanning electron microscope as a scribing tool coupled with its conventional morphological use. Although published papers on this topic emphasize impact on microelectronics, this is the first time that the chemical and scanning electron microscopic aspects have been presented in so much detail. As the use of scanning electron microscopy in the field of coatings and polymers increases, scientists become more aware of closely related techniques, such as x-ray spectroscopy. The second symposium includes two papers on this technique: one describes the x-ray unit interfaced with an existing microscope, and the other deals with a closely related tool, the electron microprobe. In the future, we shall see more combining of scanning electron microscopy with other instruments and with other techniques, to arrive at more sophisticated probing of our many problems. jg p.5
